Desi Girl.....
  I have been attending a few weddings this summer. First my BFF got married and now it was one of my cousins getting married. 
One was a love cum arranged marriage and other was a love marriage.... In one marriage both the boy and the girl were waiting to meet Mr. Right and Ms. Right for a long time, whereas in the other marriage Mr. Right and Ms. Right were in love since long long time but were waiting for family approvals. Whatever their stories are, the fact is that today they are married (happily married) to the person of their choice.
 I strongly believe in destiny, no matter what there is one person for everyone, whom you meet and share your life together with.  Like the way I met my husband almost 11 years ago and it still feels like yesterday. No matter how much time I spend with him it always seems little. Things change a little over a period of time with transition from being college student’s to working professional and then to being married and staying together. But it’s been a wonderful journey with so many great experiences, moments shared and ups and downs...we have stayed together (touchwood J) 
I am not trying to be a marriage/relationship counsellor or something of that sort but just sharing my experience on relationships...
Some things which I would like to share are:
·         Always say “I Love You”(mean it too)
·         Give selflessly without expecting
·         Give and have your own space... 
·         Don’t forget that you are friends
Now coming to today’s post I bought this saree to wear for this wedding. Since the colour was so fresh and the blouse was in a contrast colour I decided to keep it simple yet glamorous with the jewellery and the makeup.
The design of the blouse was an inspiration from what Aishwarya Rai and Vidya Balan have been wearing lately. My tailor did a good job of making a perfect blouse to which I added a leaf shaped motif at the back of the blouse.

By the SEA....

"When anxious, uneasy and bad thoughts come, I go to the sea, and the sea drowns them out with its great wide sounds, cleanses me with its noise, and imposes a rhythm upon everything in me that is bewildered and confused."- Rainer Maria Rilke

        Hello!!! I am writing after a long long time, seems like ages. Work and so many other activities on hand have been keeping me busy. Couldn’t even do an outfit post.
       Today’s post is really very special. It is about the place where I belong, where I spent my childhood vacations, connected with relatives-uncles, aunts, cousins, community. It’s about my native...I belong to the costal part of  Maharashtra …Kokan, where we have pristine beaches, seafood, the king of fruits Mango, cashew, coconut...and all the best things in life which anyone could ask for.
      We went for a short visit to our native last week for an annual event. This trip not only proved to be refreshing but also served as the much needed break.
      I just love the sea and this time since we were a large group we opted to stay at a resort closer to our family home and the beach. What more can I say about all of it....the amazing pictures below will do all the talking...





"At the beach, life is different. Time doesn't move hour to hour but mood to moment. We live by the currents, plan by the tides, and follow the sun."- Anonymous






"For whatever we lose (like a you or a me)
it's always ourselves we find in the sea."
- e.e. cummings



Who does not love the sea? The beach is a place of healing and joy. The salt cleanses us and the sun embraces us in its warmth. The ocean heals the heart, mind, and soul.

Just the basics....



This Sunday was special for us...the day which we were looking forward to....But no matter what your frame of mind is, the outside temperature does affect you...I mean the heat is so much...it’s better to be indoors....

During such time I prefer wearing something basic and comfortable....So I just put on my cotton shirt paired with basic black denim, accessorized the outfit with some colourful and metal bangles...borrowed my husband’s chain...(from his Goa Junk Jewellery collection). 

You would be wondering why Priyanka is not posting anything. Her final exams and viva's are keeping her very busy these days...I am sure you will get to see more of her after April....





Shirt- Mango
Denim- Lifestyle
Bag- Rhysetta
Shoes- Tresmode

 

BFF's Wedding


   
This was the only wedding which we all friends were waiting for...One of my very closest BFF got married. This was a special one for us since it was going to be the last bachelorette party, last mahendi, last sangeet and the wedding too for us to enjoy...

After having a great bachelorette party we were all looking ahead for the wedding day...

Here is what I wore for the Wedding in the morning...I instantly liked this dress and picked it up..The colour complemented my skin tone and it just looked perfect. In fact I received a few compliments for the dress...



For the evening reception I was joined by Priyanka and my Hubby...We all girls planned to wear a saree...I usually prefer light pastel shades which really look good in evenings with all those lights around.

Me and Priyanka...


Along with Hubby...


  And finally my BFF...The most gorgeous bride :)



It was a great day and a new start for my BFF...Now we all sail in the same boat (married)  ;)
